The prairies are alive with the sound of home

Hello, Edmonton! I’m back for the next couple of days to visit family for Thanksgiving. Although I’d hardly call this cold, barren city a relaxing vacation destination, it’s nice to be back in the place where I grew my roots, especially as a music journalist. I have so many fond music memories here: shows at the Starlite, DJs spinning at the Black Dog, random run-ins with local musicians on Whyte Avenue …

That being said, I’d like this post to be a tribute to the local bands that continue to put Edmonton on the map. You all hold a magical place in my left ventricle.
